In the event of an inadvertent temperature excursion the following data may be used:
The pre-filled pens/pre-filled syringes may be stored at room temperature (up to 25°C) for a single period of up to a maximum of 10 days with protection from light.
If the product has been left outside of the fridge and if the next scheduled dose is within 10 days after the start of the storage above 8°C, the product should be left outside of the fridge (at a temperature of up to 25°C) and injected according to the dosing schedule. If the next scheduled dose is more than 10 days after the start of the storage above 8°C, the pack may be returned to the fridge. Once the product has been returned to the fridge it cannot be subjected to further temperature excursions.
